19:27 EDTVLKAYEuropean carmakers use stripped-down vehicles for certification, WSJ says
European car certification tests rely on "golden vehicles," stripped down models with oftentimes sparse resemblance to their real-world counterparts, reports the Wall Street Journal. One anonymous auto executive disclosed that automakers in the region never use random vehicles drawn from assembly lines, remarking, "It's like preparing for a major race. We tune them and pamper them like stud horses." Companies in the space include Volkswagen (VLKAY), BMW (BAMXY), Daimler (DDAIF), Peugeot (PUGOY), and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU). Reference Link
18:21 EDTWFCGeneral Electric confirms sale of railcar services to Wells Fargo
General Electric (GE) confirmed that it has reached separate agreements to sell its tank car fleet assets and railcar repair facilities to Marmon Holdings and its remaining railcar leasing business, General Electric Railcar Services to Wells Fargo (WFC). Terms of the transactions are not being disclosed. "We expect to be substantially done with our exit strategy [to sell most of the assets of GE Capital] by the end of 2016," noted GE Capital chairman and CEO Keith Sherin. "GE and its board of directors have determined that market conditions are favorable to pursue disposition of these assets. GE Capital will retain the financing 'verticals' that relate to GE's industrial businesses," the company noted. The sale of the tank car assets is effective immediately and closed Wednesday. The sale of the railcar repair facilities is expected to close in Q4. The sale of the remaining railcar leasing business is expected to close by the end of 1Q16. When completed, the rail transactions, which represent about $4B of ending net investment, will contribute approximately $1.3B of capital to the overall target of approximately $35B of dividends expected to GE under this plan. The company also noted that the completion of the sale of GE's European fleet businesses to Arval, a fully owned subsidiary of BNP Paribas (BNPQY), is expected to close in Q4.

06:46 EDTVLKAYVolkswagen might not face criminal charges for emissions scandal, WSJ says
Volkswagen might not face environmental crime charges for admitting using test-evading software in as many as 11M cars worldwide, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing legal experts. If the Department of Justice decides to pursue a criminal case, it would be the first ever against a car maker for evading emissions standards, the report says. Car companies won a carve-out from criminal penalties in the 1970 Clean Air Act, making prosecutors consider alternative legal approaches, the report says. Reference Link

06:17 EDTF, GMFiat Chrysler labor deal faces resistance, NY Times reports
Fiat Chrysler's (FCAU) tentative deal with the United Auto Workers union has seen resistance in early voting, with several plants rejecting the deal outright, the New York Times says. Voting at some of the largest plants will start Tuesday, and that fate of the proposed four-year deal will be determined by the middle of the week, the report says. Opponents to the deal have said that it does not offer any clear path for lower-tier workers to reach the highest levels of hourly play and fails to limit the number of entry-level workers, the report says. Fiat Chrysler's deal with its auto workers is viewed as a template for labor talks that General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) will have with their workers, the report says. Reference Link
